Counselling approach

I offer both time limited counselling (typically 6 or 12 weeks), and open-ended counselling.

The counselling process includes a commitment to a regular weekly appointment of 50 minutes so that we can think together about your situation. Within this professional counselling relationship, over time, you may gain a new perspective.

My core theoretical approach is psychodynamic, which includes thinking¬† about how past experience might influence current relationships. Research into the effectiveness of counselling suggests that how you experience the relationship with your counsellor is a more important factor than their stated theoretical approach.¬† You can find more information about the differemt types of counselling and psychotherapy on the BACP ‘Find a Therapist’ website.

Finding the right counsellor for you is an important decision. An initial consultation creates time to think about your needs, how counselling with me might work, and your options.
